Was in SLC for a few days and stopped by twice. One of the better brewbars in SLC and definitely a lot of selections on draft. However its the usual low ABV stuff and, while I know its theoretically possible to have a great beer that is 4% ABV no place i went to in SLC pulled it off. Squatters had a limited (~6) number of higher ABV beers available by the bottle, though unfortunately didn't have 2 of the higher rated ones when i was there and the few I tried were slightly above average at best.

If you are in town for a conference like i was, my suggestion is to avoid this place Friday/Saturday night when it was insanely crowded. I stopped by during the day instead and it was very pleasant even though I wasn't overwhelmed by the quality of the beer.

Good bar food - burgers, sandwiches, salads, appetizers. Decent selection of their beers. Very good overall.

I used to be a regular here when I was at the U of U. I love this place. GREAT food and chasing tail will always hold a very special place in my heart. I come here every time I go back home.

Visited on my first night of two nights staying in downtown SLC; a much needed rest after about 16 days of camping on and off. We actually arrived here during a Mormon holiday but this place was still open for regular hours and quite busy actually. As far as brewpub beer goes the product was above average with clean and fresh flavors. We had some appetizers which were good. Decor was good and the bar was just huge. They also had a nice setup upstairs with a smaller bar and view of the kitchen. Worth a shot for any craft fan and especially those who are into brewpubs specifically. In a land of limited beer opportunities it was nice to see places like this, BeerHive, Uinta and Epic.

Squatters Pub is a nice airy space with soaring ceilings, exposed brick, wooden beams and posts. There are well worn wooden floor and some nice art work and banners (Oktoberfest Banners when I was there).

The long two section bar is on the right, tables to the left. The tanks are behind the front part of the bar, the open kitchen behind the back part of the bar. There is more seating in back plus they have a nice patio.

I counted 12 regular drafts and 6 rotators. I had a couple of drafts and thought they were solid. Bottle selections have more abv, so keep that in mind if you want a bigger beer.

The food was tasty and the menu is definitely a step-up from normal pub grub. I had some tasty carnitas tacos.

Service was friendly and seemed beer savvy.

I enjoyed my visit and I think most BA s will.

This was stop #4 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. This brewery visit was to have dinner and to try their beers. The place is located in an older section of the downtown area in a storefront setting. The restored building is very attractive and inviting, and the 2-story interior was also nicely done. We were seated on the second floor, and this place was rocking for a Wednesday evening.

Because of serving laws in Utah we could only have two beer samples in front of us at any time, so we shared 4 different small glasses and then ordered a couple of their bottled beers just to get a larger serving. Each of the beers that we had was brewed to style, but none had any exciting characteristics. We rated them overall at slightly above a C grade. The food was very good and outshined the beer.

Our experience here was okay, but when we’re in town again we’ll try other places. Who knows, we may end up back here in the future too.
